So, you can sue over certain expressions of ideas. OK. Well, if that's the case, then the expressions in the Cellrderm ads were completely and utterly improved by Microsoft to the point that they are new expressions. In fact, I was confused -- at first glance, I thought the Cellrderm ads were very obviously spoofs of the Microsoft ads. Ha! So the question is, who is the judge of when the initial expression stops being copied and is simply the inspiration for a new (and improved) expression of an idea? Time for some fuzzy logic.
